  • Lottery.com iOS App (Development)

    I worked on this app from 2016 until 2019. At first, when I joined the team, I was tasked to make the user interface look excellent along with various refactors and bug fixes. When we converted the entire front end to React Native, I was in charge of making sure that the iOS-dependent modules worked as intended.

  • Stamena (Development)

    I worked as the sole developer on a Swift-based strength training app. I worked with one designer and had full reign over the underlying software architecture. This project took about two weeks to complete.
